    Has anyone ordered from Lee Factory Sales?
    It seems they have some of the best prices, but wondering if some of the presses are factory returns.
    Input?
    Thanks, Floyd

    I've bought from them several times. They sell regular stock, not returns. They're just a factory outlet store. Good prices, standard quality.

    Me too. I have nothing but good things to say about them. My last purchase was a Lee Classic Cast Turret press, I think I paid $72 for it brand new in the box. Their prices are the best you will find for Lee products. You can really benefit if you visit their site often and take advantage of periodic sales.

    They have good prices and decent shipping. I was going to buy a standard lee press (like 25 bucks) and a set of carbide dies. They told me 13.50 shipping for that. Not too terrible. I didnt actually order it, because I got a better deal at midway.

    Bought stuff from there years ago. It's the usual Lee stuff, just at good prices. If you don't load a lot, Lee is fine. It wears out pretty quick if you are into competitive shooting and burn a couple of thousand rounds a month or more.

    Lee does sell through a FACTORY STORE but have a different category for CLOSEOUTS/REFURBS. I don't know about the closeouts, refurbs, etc. but on new equipment, you can find it for less with a little shopping around.

    What a bogus blanket statement to make about an entire product line.

    So if someone loads only 1999 rounds a month, Lee equipment will be OK, right?

    I have a lee and RCBS presses and have used the lee just as much as the RC and still no signs of wear on either.

    I ordered a .308 Win. Deluxe Rifle Die set, adjustable charge bar, and a 4 hole turret from them yesterday. I tried to go thru Midway because they are a little cheaper, but they haven't had the .308 deluxe dies in for some time. I'm afraid this place probably doesn't either, but their website is more primative and doesn't tell you what their out of like Midway does. I thought the shipping was a little excessive. That's why thru in the chargebar--shipping was the same. I got a confirmation saying allow 4 WEEKS. Hope they send it sooner.

    I hope my classic turret doesn't see this, it would be time for it to fall apart. I have loaded thousands of rounds of 9mm, 38 spcl, 45 auto and 223 over the last two years and the only thing my CT has done is gotten smoother. OH by the way I shoot IDPA, GSSF, fun matches and practice at the club I belong to.

    my input is i use a lot of lee stuff speed dies,autoprime,perfect powder measure, and safety scale... i've had nothing but good from lee since i started reloading about 25 yrs ago... last summer i was preppeing some 3006cases for a gfriend when i broke my little lee reloader press (i knew i was working it pretty hard)... contacted lee and sent the broken frame to them with a $15 check to pay for a new frame... about a week later i got the frame and the uncashed check in a nice little package.... i like the lee speed die setup i have to load .38 spl and .357 magnum from two single stage presses... i had lee make me a custom bullet seater too a few years back too.... i'll buy lee equipment!

    I have bought a couple of powder throws and had broken decap pins replaced, their service and shipping is great and they warranty things well.

    I had to cancel an order a week or so ago. Shipping is AT LEAST four weeks. As of last week they were still shipping orders from the first week in December.

    Other than that, I have a small bone to pick with them - they chargied my CC with plan to ship the order for several weeks - seems they should bill at the the time of shipping if there's that much of a backlog. That's how most places do it.

    That said - the guy (I forget his name) was very cool about cancelling the order and refunding.

    Bottom line, if you need it NOW (or soon) you probably should go elsewhere - at least for now. If you can wait, Lee Factory Sales is fine.

    Wow, thanks for the heads up. I was thinking about ordering a powder measure through them, but I think I will go ahead and go elsewhere.

    I use nothing but lee products if I have a choice. They make an excellent product and their C.S. is A++. I ordered dies and die parts straight from the factory and had great results Saved me about $15.

    I sent an e-mail this morning to ask what the shipping time frame will be. No hurry other than I'd like to start but plenty of other stuff to do in the meantime(like read this board back to finish). I'll post back to this thread when it arrives.

    I was also going to order from them
    The main reason I didnt was the 4 week wait. Not that I am in a rush but the way things are going I just worried it may be out of stock by then too.
    So I used Kempf & highly recommend them. They were fast & friendly.Also they have some custom kits with the classic too.

    I put an order in on 1/6 and I am still waiting. They called me last week (2/5)and said they just got a shipment in and if I still wanted my order. I told them YES since I was waiting paitiently and they had charged my card 4 weeks ago! I wait a week and hear nothing. I email and ask when they are shipping and I get a reply that my order didn't come in on that truck and they are expecting another truck this coming week. We'll see.

    I have an order with Factory Sales myself for a Classic turret and a number of bits and pieces.

    Placed the order 2/4/09. We shall see how long it takes to arrive.

    For items in stock, I doubt anybody ships faster than Midway USA.
